Kolkata [India], Sept 21 (ANI): The Virat Kohli-led Indian team will aim to put further misery on a depleted Australia side when the two teams head into the second ODI of the five-match series here at the Eden Gardens later today.
The `Men in Blue` would also expect their top order batsmen to make amends for a rare poor show in the series-opener and hope that the spinners continue to torment the visitors today.
It is speculated that the pitch has been prepared to play fair to both batsmen and bowlers, but with weather gods predicting overcast conditions, the conditions could offer a fair bit of help to the slower bowlers as well.
India: Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(captain), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Lokesh Rahul
Australia: David Warner, Hilton Cartwright, Steven Smith(captain), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(wk), James Faulkner, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Aaron Finch, Kane Richardson, Peter Handscomb, Ashton Agar. (ANI)
